LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Border War is returning to college basketball. The acrimonious rivalry between Kansas and Missouri, once the longest continually played rivalry west of the Mississippi River, will resume next season in Kansas City. The schools have agreed to play six times with four of those matchups taking place on their respective campuses.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — With its defense continuing to struggle, it will be up to Sam Ehlinger and the offense to carry No. 15 Texas the rest of the way. The Longhorns escaped a home loss to Kansas when Ehlinger drove the Longhorns to the winning field goal on the final play over the weekend. Coach Tom Herman says no one on his team is satisfied with the defensive performance as Kansas became the latest team to shred the Longhorns.

DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say one man has been arrested and a second is being sought in last month's slaying of ex-NBA and Texas Tech standout Andre Emmett Jr. WFAA-TV reports 32-year-old Keith Johnson was being held on a capital murder charge with bond set at $500,000. Online Dallas County jail records didn't immediately list an attorney representing Johnson. Investigators say Johnson and a second man allegedly shot Emmett during a robbery attempt.

UNDATED (AP) — Michigan State is No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 men's college basketball preseason poll for the first time in its history. Tom Izzo's Spartans received 60 of 65 first-place votes as the runaway choice. No. 2 Kentucky and No. 3 Kansas received the other first-place votes. Duke, Louisville, Florida, Maryland, Gonzaga, North Carolina and Villanova round out the top 10.

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Last year as a freshman, Brock Purdy was Iowa State's third-string quarterback when he stepped on the field for his first meaningful action against Oklahoma State. He led the Cyclones to a big win. Now, Purdy is an established star for No. 23 Iowa State and neutralizing him will be a major challenge for Oklahoma State on Saturday.

UNDATED (AP) — Savon Scarver has picked up where he left off as the nation's top kick returner. The Utah State junior ran back a kick 100 yards for a touchdown for the second time this season when he went the distance against Nevada on Saturday. All five of Scarver's school-record five kick return touchdowns have come in his last 32 runbacks. Memphis' Kenny Gainwell is the first player since 1997 to have 200 yards receiving and 100 yards rushing in same game.

UNDATED (AP) — Ohio State edged past Clemson to No. 3 in The Associated Press college football poll and Wisconsin dropped to 13th after being upset ahead of its showdown with the Buckeyes. Alabama remained No. 1 in the AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank and No. 2 LSU held its place. Oklahoma stayed No. 5 but Penn State moved up to sixth after Wisconsin's loss to Illinois. Florida, Notre Dame, Auburn and Georgia rounded out the top 10 to give the Southeastern Conference five of the top 10 teams.
